Re: Radiator heater hose fitting

I would clean the area(sanding) around the fitting, look for cracks. Take out the fitting and check the threads, reinstall with a brass fitting of the correct size and thread sealer(perm a tex), then make sure the hose is supported in some fashion

If it is cracked, time for a radiator shop, or try to soldier it yourself, but I suspect the plastic threads gave out
